In 1952 Narayani Nayak, an Udupi-based homemaker, published Cookery Craft as a 'convenient kitchen companion to every housewife'. Spanning the cuisine of the entire Konkani-speaking community of Maharashtra, Goa and Karnataka, Naik's cookbook quickly became a go-to for Konkani brides, and was reprinted four times before it disappeared. That is, until food blogger Jyotsna Shahane rediscovered this lost gem. Inspired by Nayak's recipes, The Classic Konkan Cookbook is more than a second act. Shahane draws from her own experiences cooking Konkani food for over 40 years, adding new recipes and updating older ones for modern appliances and measuring techniques. From Duddi Koshambari, a delectable pumpkin flower salad and to Kori Gassi, a robust chicken curry, The Classic Konkan Cookbook features over 100 delicious recipes celebrating the freshness and simplicity of coastal food. An inspiring collection for a new generation of home cooks looking to add traditional tastes to their table.
